Roden Gray has partnered with Goodfight for a concise capsule that nods to the time-honored heritage of American workwear, riffing on the culture of weekend car meet-ups. Dubbed “Full Service Sunday,” the assemblage includes two of Goodfight’s signature silhouettes: its ruched three-quarter-length-sleeve coach jacket and split-front trousers.
Colored in a rich navy dye, both pieces make up an ensemble called “Sunday’s Best” inspired by the opening line of the song “… Slowdance On The Inside” by New York rock quartet Taking Back Sunday. Goodfight’s lead designer Calvin Nguyen notes the pieces reflect the “backward approach to elevating details people typically overlook” in its designs. The garments are imbued with subtle details, like silk chiffon-wrapped labels and reinforced seam binding. The pieces were constructed using a special cotton twill sourced from a defunct workwear mill in North Carolina, once the primary supplier for khaki used in the US military’s WWII uniforms.
The jacket boasts a semi-boxy fit, etched with contrasting white top-stitching and silver-toned hardware. It sports a two-way central zip closure, an adjustable cinch belt at the hem and twin waist pockets. Its matching pants also come with contrast stitching along the side seams, rounding off the considered designs of the nuanced goods. The fabrics on the pieces are durable and will age with a natural wear process unique to the owner.
Roden Gray and Goodfight’s “Full Service Sunday” capsule will be available on August 8 on Roden Gray’s website — prices have yet to be confirmed.
